Hi,

Is it some easy way to make a power meter for my lasers? I have no clue whatsoever what the power output is, and I have a violet, green, red, and IR laser which I was hoping to measure the power output. I only know they are burning different matter such as wood, skin, electric tape, ignite matches, pops balloons, burns hole in CD cases etc.

If you are good with electronics... there is a thread to build a DIY Laser Power Meter Gauge....
but it is a work in progress... and the final results are not yet known...  :)

If your lasers are only green or red and under 120mW you can look at this....

but it is no where as accurate as the LaserBee I...

Hey Low-Q, like everyone else is saying i'd go with the LaserBee I, I got mine a month or so ago and it's great, easy to use, you can get them with data logging and it'll work with your red green and blu lasers ;)
